I brought my kids here and they loved it. Me to! Its a great place to learn about the local history. Its even in an old mill type building. There are many friends that volunteer here and make it a great place to learn about the things that were manufactured in the area.

This museum has so much local history (It's in an old manufacturing building, tucked next to a river), students visit from local schools to learn more about their community, and their grandparents come to see bits of their own past - highlights include some of the larger manufacturing that was in the area, including many that no longer exist -...

The Museum of Our Industrial Heritage brings to life the history of industrial Greenfield and the surrounding communities through their collections, photographs, notations, and personal narrative. The weather cooperated the day of our visit and we were treated to a... More
